Dreaming of a White Christmas

Its that time of year again winter is setting in and its coming up to Christmas. Like most winter’s at some point, in the north-east of Scotland we have been hit by heavy snow fall. Which looks like it may last until Christmas.RuralPrint05Some places around Scotland have been hit with temperatures as low as –20c. I think the lowest temperatures that we have seen so far here in Aberdeen are –16c. Anyway I thought that I would brace the cold weather and venture out in the snow to get some winter themed photos.RuralPrint03I think snow always looks so much better when in the countryside and makes for much better wintery scenes. It’s not the same in town/urban areas, you don’t get to see the whole beauty of nature in it natural surroundings. Luckily I don’t have to venture too far to see some countryside. I have always said that I am very lucky that where I live at the moment I am only a few minutes walk away from farmland and countryside.RuralPrint04As much as I am not a big fan of snow or more importantly it being that cold you can’t feel your fingers. You can’t deny that in the right environment it makes for some beautiful views.

With a little bit of patience I got to capture my favourite part of the day, sunset. Casting its glow over the snow covered landscape. The contrast of the fire blazed sunset boldly stands out against the frozen blues and whites of the snow covered fields. Resulting in some beautiful wintery shots to add to my portfolio. Nature never fails to inspire me with its beauty.
